Outdoor activities galore

A great day saw all the kids take part in cycling through the woods, take part in archery and compete an obstacle course, where the staff also took part in a race against the kids! We won!!! 
It ended with 12 of us walking across the white cliffs to South Foreland lighthouse for our own private guided tour of it. Very interesting. 

A peaceful night, an early morning!

All the kids were in bed, for their first night, by 10:30 - meaning the adult had a peaceful nights sleep. A shame that the sun rose at 4:30 and most of the kids didn't know it was 4:30! That early morning light can be decieving!

We are now all at Fowlmeads waiting to start our days outdoor. Look out on Twitter for a possible adult vs children assault course race later in the day!

Evening walk

Off we go for the first activity with the second group, back to the abbey, but this time into the trees and up a hill for one of Mr Saunders' legendary stories! 

The sun is out!

What a lovely morning at the Abbey. Ice cream was flowing and everyone completed the quiz, getting most of the answers correct!
Group photo time. 


The happy, fresh-faced new campers have arrived! All together and getting ready for a day together in Kearsney Abbey. 
The sun shining!!!

Part 1 of the week has been a 100% success. Well done guys and girls.

What a day!

Despite the chill factor in that North Eastern wind, we had a full on day down at Fowlmeads. Archery was canceled due to high winds, but that did not dampen the spirits of all taking part in a cycle ride through the woods, getting on their hands and knees to complete an obstacle course, and bringing out everyone's competitive side in a geocaching competition! 
A brilliantly fun day leaving lots of tired little, and big people! 

Sleeping soundly

What a peaceful night! All was quiet by 11:30pm and everyone seems well rested. 
Check out Twitter for what treat the staff got before the kids emerged!
